Re: pickup wiring
thanks doc for the reply:  
the pickup is a single coil and yes i will be plugging into generally speaking, older tube amps.  
the guitar has both volume and tone control.  
now, there is a hole for a wire from the bridge to the controls, but most diagrams i see don't even mention this. i think from doing a little reading that this setup causes the hum to diminish when you touch the strings, which doesn't sound so great. how can i shield the control cavity and or wire in a system that will cointr5ol the hum?  
thanks for the help
